URGENT PROBLEM: BOOT_DEVICE_INACCESSABLE
Posted on 2002-05-29
I just installed Win2K Pro on to a nice clean 15GB NTFS partition (i included a surface scan when making this partition so i know it's clean). When I boot up, the Win2K loading page comes up. When it's about 2/3 done loading I get a blue screen printing this message: BOOT_DEVICE_INACCESSABLE. What does this mean? I've tried installing Win2K over again 5 times, and i get this same error every time. I really can't afford to format my harddrive. From what I've seen in the newsgroups it might be caused by a boot sector virus? I scanned with Pc-Cillin which says that it scans the boot sector and found no viruses. Does anyone have any idea what is going on here, and how to fix it? I'll double the points if this question can be answered with in the next few hours!!!
